The Ruins - Ancestral Home of Talisay City, Negros Occidental

One of the interesting hobby I love is traveling in locals and out of town. Soon, when I'll accomplished visiting all great places in the Philippines, then I would love to travel out of country.

Visiting Philippine's heritage places is one of a kind, indeed an extravagant feeling. Given a chance to visit Negros Occidental, to witness Bacolod City's MassKara Festival, we also listed The Ruins in our itinerary.

A Brief History of The Ruins

The Ruins is known to be as Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson Ancestral Home in Talisay City, Negros Occidental. It is the largest residential structure that was built on the said city. And Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson built it for his wife Maria Braga. It was a garden like before, full of water lilies around the four tiered fountain.

And today, the skeletal ancestral home is still standing proud and many Filipinos and foreign tourists were amazed with it's beauty.

Last January 2008, they let The Ruins be open to public. It was a very known venue for wedding receptions and birthday parties among the locals.

You'll need to pay PHP 50.00 to enter around the mansion and take pictures. They have a separate coffee shop located just behind the mansion and they serve breakfast. They also have a souvenir shop.

How To Get There

It's an advantage if you'll bring vehicle with you. You just need to take the road beside the Honda Cars showroom in Talisay City. A total of 3 kilometer ride from the said road.

For commuters, you can hire a tricycle from Bangga Rose Lawns, a memorial park and then just tell the driver to take you at the ruins.
